Towards a more minimally invasive laparoscopic cholecystectomy--a viewpoint



Towards a more minimally invasive laparoscopic cholecystectomy--a viewpoint



Annals of the Academy of Medicine, Singapore 25(5): 742-743



The advent of laparoscopy and its associated instrumentation in the treatment of gallstone disease heralded a new revolution in surgery. The obvious advantages of cosmetically superior scars and low morbidity have made the minimally invasive approach the preferred choice in the removal of the gallbladder with its stones. Several modifications to the technique have now made it possible to perform cholecystectomy via fewer and smaller port sites. This has translated into even lower postoperative pain and faster recovery times.
